Struck by a High Beam

Here is my review for Benefit's High Beam!

High Beam is a Benefit
This product is one of those that I took my time purchasing. I don't know why, but I had my eye on it for awhile and just never got around to buying it until a month or so ago. I read some reviews of it on Makeup Alley, which I absolutely suggest that you do before splurging on any makeup item. The girls there are great!

I rather like High Beam. It's an excellent highlighter. There are multiple ways to use it. You can mix it with your moisturizer or liquid foundation for an all-over glow and dewy effect. You can use it just under the eyebrows to highlight your brow bone. Personally, I use it to highlight my cheeks, right down my nose, and the part of my chin right under my lips.

For my cheeks, I draw two Xs. One bigger one near the nose and a smaller one directly down from the outer corner of the eye. Then, I use a foundation brush to blend it in going outward. Afterwards, I draw a slight line down the bridge of my nose and blend in. I use what's left on the brush and blend it in on my chin. Basically, you want to put it anywhere that the light will hit your face. This chart shows how I do it!

I love High Beam, it lasts really well too- throughout the day and over the months, it's almost two years since I bought it now- Sept 2007, and there's still lots left. (this is a daily use product by the way, so I must say I'm very impressed)
